Martin and James || Guest post by Vanessa

Hey guys,

today I'm going to blog about my favourite band.

This is the way I would say hi to my readers. But you probably wonder who I am - I am a guest blogger on this wonderful blog. 

My name is Vanessa, my blog is called house in the sand. And it's my baby. I started this blog about 8 months ago and I am really happy about how it turned out to be. My house in the sand got it's name from a song - my favourite song from my favourite band, the band I am going to tell you about.

This band is called Martin and James - and you can probably tell by the name that it involves two guys - Martin and James. Martin Kelly and James O'Neill to be exact. 

They are from Glasgow, Scottland but are currently living in Berlin, Germany.

Two guys - that you be a band?! That's probably what you're thinking right now - isn't it a duo then? No, Martin and James are a band. They play guitar, piano, drums, harmonica and percussions. Alright, maybe tons of people know how to play lots of instruments, right? But Martin and James sometimes even play 3 instruments at one time. 

To describe their music the first words that come into my head are folk, pop and acoustic. But I feel like those words can't describe their music.. It's like you would need to create new words to do that. So why don't you just listen to them? :)

What I also should mention when I talk blog about them: Martin and James are probably the most wonderful guys I know. There wasn't one of their shows I've been to where they didn't come out at the end to meet and talk to everyone. (and just to mention that, I've been to seven shows) 
They have done soo soo much for me and I'm forever thankful that I got to know them at the Taylor Swift concert 1,5 years ago. 

Maybe start off by listening to their music with this song:

Feel free to read more about the guys in the interview I did with them. They talk about growing up together and a lot more. Also you can find all links to connect with them.
